Step 1: Watch the Video
Start with a 4 x 10 plate and make 2 legs that stick out 2 studs.
Start building upwards, use some headlight bricks so we can add some obstacles later.
Smooth off the edges with some tiles and slopes.
Keep building up and then you'll want leave a flat space on top.
Next we'll need to build this assembly and then hook 2 small rubber bands on the back.
Now place that assembly upside down on the top of our main assembly.
Next we'll need to clamp it down with a plate.
Now attach some pieces with some sort of hook on them and hook the rubber bands on.
Keep building up the sides.
Use a 1 x 4 plate and a gear plate stacked together to make the flipper buttons.
Place the flipper buttons face down on the gears in the gap on top, leaving 2 teeth sticking out.
Place a 1 x 10 plate in the gap above the buttons then keep building up, leaving a spot where the ball can exit.
Add some headlight bricks on the bottom and attach 2 1x1 tiles for legs, then tile off the top.
Build something to catch the ball (I used a Lego soccer ball), add some obstacles, and start playing.
